Work not to look good, but to make others look bad.

I don't know who said that... But I liked it.

My workout today was a so-so experience. I could feel my muscles working the whole time which felt great, but I felt like punching Rebekkah in the mouth every time she opened her mouth to say how great she felt.


Here is how I looked after my brutal workout today:

I smiled because I was SO HAPPY that I was done.

This is a short one today, so I'm going to give you a piece of advice and call it a night:

If you're going to buy a workout DVD, get the Insanity system. Its 10 times better and the guy lets you know that he's human by reminding you that he is in pain also and that it SUCKS to work out. Why sugar coat it?

"How am I to know what I can achieve if I quit?"
Stick with it, ladies!

Who Says Alcohol and Workouts Don't Mix??

People say that losing weight is no walk in the park.  When I hear that I think, yeah, that's the problem.  ~Chris Adams

Hellooooo ladies!!!

I'm sure by now you have done 3 things:
1. Laughed at my quote. I mean, come on- it makes a whole lot of sense, right!?
2. Counted how many "o"s I deemed necessary for the word Hello... and if you haven't you're tempted to, now. (there's 5)
3. Wondered what the heck I'm talking about in my title... and you no doubt think I'm a giant alcoholic.

Well, girls- The answer is "No, I am not an alcoholic, I just have no weights!!"

Here is me after my workout, bearing all of my workout essentials:
  That's right- The Firm with this Rebekkah chick, and 2 bottles of Cruzan Rum!

First off, let me just say that Rebekkah is a giant skank. I don't know about any of you, but when I work out I want to know that the person on the video is in as much pain as I am. THis lady, on the other hand, is Little Miss Happy-Go-Lucky. It's enough to make you sick. That, and she has a way of putting way too much emphasis on her "R"s, which I find crazy annoying.

Second, go ahead and sue me for not owning a proper pair of weights. The closest thing I could nab was two empty bottles of Cruzan; The only pair of anything I own besides socks... and I guess heels... At any rate, they worked out GREAT!!!

The moral of my workout-tale is this: It doesn't matter if you're using something completely unorthodox to workout with. The important thing is that you are taking charge of your body and WORKING OUT!!

That, my dears, is pretty damn impressive in and of itself. If any one wants to give you crap about it, just sock 'em in the mouth with your impressive new guns. :)

It's not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not. -Anonymous

I have been gone from my blog for far too long!!

SO much has happened since I last made contact with all of you ladies. I've lost 5 lbs. this summer (Woot woot!!) This brings me even CLOSER to my goal of 125 lbs.

Quite honestly, I don't know how I've accomplished this..

I haven't been working out religiously (or at all, actually), and I haven't been eating the greatest. However, I could attribute this to the fact that I hardly eat anymore. With all of the running around and stress from school and work, I haven't had much time to get food into my mouth!

Am I saying this is healthy? Hell. No. I need to be getting some fruits and veggies in me PRONTO.

However, I find it a small blessing that when I'm stressed or upset that I CANNOT eat. I know a lot of people use that as a coping mechanism. Well, apparently my body has the exact opposite response. GOOD.

I am very interested in hearing how everyone is doing this summer!!
Are you working out daily? Weekly? Monthly??

Are you slacking like I am?

Are you eating healthy? Are you binging more often?

Let me know how your fitness goals are coming along! I'm dying to hear from you all!!

For now I'll leave you with a quote from Samuel Johnson:
"Clear your mind of CAN'T"
